Long Draw and Paint (Still Life and Figure in Space) with Ron Krouk

Long Draw and Paint 

(Still Life and Figure in Space)

ALL LEVELS
MEDIUM: CHARCOAL, OIL, ACRYLICS

Ron Krouk

This class explores the linkages between drawing and painting.  The drawing time is focused on three skills which directly impact painting and reward continued practice: gesture, contour and straight lines.  Through these, we will explore composition, proportion, shape, value, space and mark-making as they apply to painting in oil or acrylic.  Paintings will be of varying duration and the focus will always be on getting the big things right before getting seduced by detail and on correct color and value rather than on “effects.”  The class benefits from including people at all levels of experience and each class is followed up with a summary of the lessons learned and images of the work done.

(This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor.)

Fun and Freedom in Drawing with Kathleen Jacobs

Fun and Freedom in Drawing

ALL LEVELS

MEDIUM: CHARCOAL

Kathleen Jacobs

In this class, Kathleen Jacobs will help you find a certain sense of freedom within your drawing practice while keeping it fun!  Students will explore the development of hand-arm-eye coordination required for all perceptual drawing.  You will learn how to look and transcribe observations onto a paper surface with the use of a single stick of charcoal.  Experimenting with line weight, direction and speed will be followed by understanding value using both additive and reductive methods.  This class will investigate how the power of light and dark can create volume, space, form and dynamic compositions.  The subjects of this class include still life and architectural space.
